Cheddar Cheese Anyone?

don't even say it. another quilt? why not. it's just a doll quilt. i picked these 12 brown Jo Morton prints when my LQS was having their sale. of course i only got 1/8 yard of each. that was really hard. but not impossible. i just knew something would come up and this is all i would need.cheddar. turkey. poison. i've been learning new lingo. but just a beginner. i might be taking a chance using this black & beige toile for the background. but when it comes to cheddar. the expert has suggested that this one is the best. just a measly 1/2 yard is on its way to me. that was also very hard. because they are having a sale on everything until January 15th. but i repeat not impossible. my plan while i wait was to cut sets. a set i decided was 2 squares and 4 triangles. and since it was suggested that we could use 36 scrap fabrics. i decided i should cut 3 sets from each brown print. and 36 sets from the background. the toile is by Faye Burgos for Marcus Brothers.

Who can resist a sale! But I have to say you were very restrained, you only got 1/8th yard cuts. Amazing, I don't know that I could have been so good.

Have fun with it Karen. :-)

I'm trying hard to stash bust for another year. Daughter wanted more clothes space so I gave her my fabric chest. I am now down to 2 bedside cabinets and a couple of wicker trays. My goal for the year is to be in just the cabinets. It feels almost imopossible though.
